    Just got their latest magazine, superb quality and you can't help but wish them well with their expansion plans which will be boosted by a £500,000 legacy.

    I agree totally. I received my magazine on Saturday and it is extremely informative and very good quality as usual. I've never been to MSN yet but I thoroughly enjoy being a distant member and I would encourage anyone with an interest in railways to join the society at Midsomer Norton.

    What's the legacy tied up in, AFAIK the station site is pretty much in its original configuration, I think they have space for an out of sight shed further down the line?

    Yes I am an active volunteer
    A most welcome sum of money for sure. They mention the extension to Chilcompton so maybe this is what the extra money will support.
    Of course the money may be restricted in its use. Anyway time will tell.

    Crossing Silver Street, at least work towards that would be better than a pipe dream of clearing the cutting.

    But only going through the cutting allows the railway to 'break out' to an area with the potential for a larger site for sidings/workshops/parking etc
